Wallets. They generally serve a single(ish) purpose: carrying cash, IDs and credit cards. So when I stumbled upon the Powerwallet and DOQ and had to do a double take.
Now, don’t get me wrong. Wallets and slim batteries, combined together, to charge a smartphone, has long existed. So suffice to say that’s far from a new idea.
So what makes this product different? The built-in battery, found in the wallet – which mind you includes a built-in charging cable – can be wirelessly charged via the included dock. Hence DOQ.
But that’s not all. Not only does the DOQ charge the included battery wallet, but can charge the iPhone X since both sides are Qi certified. And – yes “and” – there is a spot for placing an Apple Watch charger which can be plugged in via one of two USB ports found on the side of the DOQ. Total footprint: 5″ by 3″. Three devices charged in spot and no messy wires. So put more succinctly, it’s 1 dock for 3 devices.
